Eight days of music as BretFest to strike a chord

Evesham Editorial 11th Jul, 2019   0

A CELEBRATION of music in a picturesque Vale village will kick off this weekend as the ever-popular BretFest bids to hit all the right notes.

Eight days of music kicks off tomorrow (Friday) when internationally renowned concert pianist Marcel Zidani, Bretforton’s own Paul Wood on cornet and Carol Huber-Allen come together for an evening at The Manor Ballroom in the village.

An evening of music kicks off from 7.30pm and tickets are available from the community shop.

On Saturday evening ‘Bret’s Got Talent’ will take place in the Community Social Club from 7pm. You don’t have to live in Bretforton to take part and the winner will get to perform to an audience in excess of 3,000 at the Bretforton proms.

BretFest continues on the Sunday at a more relaxed pace with the village fete taking place at the historic Fleece Inn.

Bretforton Silver Band will be there to entertain visitors from midday and all the proceeds will go to village organisations.

The week of events will finish with Bretforton Silver Band’s ever popular ‘Last Night of the Proms’ which starts at 5pm next Saturday (July 20) in the Butty, Bretforton.

This year’s entertainment includes Bret Set Go, PODs, Betsy Harmony, Beth Harris as well as Bretforton Silver Band.

The finale of the evening features the traditional music associated with the proms such as Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory before a spectacular firework display from G Force fireworks brings the curtain down on the event.

Entry is free and music lovers can gather at the Butty from 1pm.
